6k Steel Legion v 6k Eldar – Army Lists

6k Steel Legion vs. Eldar

I recently returned from the home to Lancaster for the start of the university term  – and what better way to celebrate than getting in a game of epic? My two friends (Andy from Miniature Miscellany and Ben from Forgot My Tea) teamed up their eldar to face up against my (almost fully painted!) guard. I was using the Steel Legion list in this game, mostly because I could be bothered to set up all the trenchlines necessary, which are ultimately pointless against Eldar anyway, to play Siegemasters.

This post will have the opposing lists, and then once I get up to uni I will put together a fully featured, activation-by-activation battle report – not like my usual disjointed pictures and vague rememberances.

Griffons

3 Griffons

A quick update with some Griffon Mortar Carriers I have been painting up. They have loads of baggage and interesting little bits a pieces on them – including the searchlight on the middle one. It is much brighter in real life and is something I think I am going to carry through the army wherever there are searchlights on the models.

Side view

I have found them pretty good gamewise, though perhaps not as useful as Hellhounds – this is slightly borne out by me having 3 Griffons and 12 Hellhounds…  As a set of three (you can buy them singly in the LatD list) they throw out a template out to 60cm on sustain, or at 30cm range they add in their heavy bolters and sync up well with infantry ranges.
